I want something like this Vista gadget: TopProcess to put in my google desktop sidebar
If you are really concerned about the memory utilization on your system,
This is what I would suggest for tracking process utilization,

Get Vista sidebar in XP (just some possibilities, they might or might not work): http://vista-sidebar-xp.en.softonic.com/
http://www.downloadsquad.com/2008/11/17/get-the-vista-sidebar-in-xp/ - this ones looks pretty good
Of course, should you not want to the vista sidebar (which is actually semi-cool)...
